H.R 1446 also known as the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021 would require firearm purchasers to wait a minimum of 10 business days before receiving their weapon. The current law allows for three days to conduct a background check, which does not allow the F.B.I enough time to thoroughly examine the influx of background check requests. This was the case in Charleston, South Carolina when a white supremacist tragically shot up a church known as the Charleston Church Massacre. In light of the Rob Elementary School shooting that tragically transpired in Uvalde, Texas. This bill got put on the legislative calendar to be voted on.
In order for gun legislation to pass either Democrats need to vote to end the filibuster, or Republicans need to support more expansive gun control measures. This bipartisan gun bill will not solve all of our problems, but it is the start of meaningful reform.
